Sitges Town Council continues renewal of ceramic name tiles on several streets

The culture department of Sitges Town Council continues the process of renewing the ceramic name tiles of several streets in the town, with the latest being for the streets between Rafael Llopart and l’Onze de Setembre.

Some tiles are new and have been placed on street corners where there were none until now, such as on Carrer de Joan Maragall, Carrer d’Isabel Julià and Carrer de l’Onze de Setembre.

In other places, the existing ones have been replaced to make the text correspond exactly with the wording of the street names in the ‘Official Nomenclature’ of Sitges streets, approved by the municipal council many years ago. These are the streets of Felip Massó, Antoni Muïño, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Magí Casanovas and Pompeu Fabra.

This current activity is running parallel to what the council is also doing to carry out one of the objectives of its Municipal Action Plan (PAM) 2019-2023, which is to study a revision of the town’s nomenclature in light of Spain’s new ‘democratic memory law’ and also use more women’s names for new streets in Sitges. ALSO READ: The names of streets in Sitges will become more feminine and ‘festive’.
